Vancouver Airport Authority is honoured to be recognized for its innovative use of technology for its Live@YVR campaign by the Canadian e-Tourism Awards.
The prestigious national awards recognize engaging online travel stories and businesses that prove innovation, creativity and results in marketing Canadian travel experiences. Rebecca Catley, Director of Communications for the Airport Authority, accepted the “Best Innovative Use of Technology” award March 6 in Toronto as part of the Online Revealed Canada Conference.
Live@YVR was a unique campaign that invited the community to apply, and then vote for, a special correspondent to live, sleep and eat at the airport for 80 days and 80 nights, while sharing YVR’s stories with the world. Contest winner, Jaeger Mah, shared the airport community’s stories through videos, blogs and images via a dedicated online channel.
